SAMBAR POWDER



We all love idlis and dosas and sambar is the accompaniment that is made regularly at home. Why not we make the fresh masala at home in small quantities for our use. I feel the store bought ones loose the flavours as they remain on the shelf for quite some time. Here is the recipe for you.

Ingredients:
Coriander seeds ..... 1/4 cup.
Cumin seeds ........... 1 tbsp.
Chana dal ................ 1 tbsp.
Toor dal .................. 1 tbsp.
Methi seeds ............ 1 tsp.
Red chillies (dry)..... 6 - 8
Curry leaves ........... 8
Cloves ...................... 5
Oil ............................2 tsp.

Method:
Roast all the above ingredients.
Dry grind into a coarse powder.
